Paal ice is a delicious and my childhood favorite popsicle recipe. It is prepared completely with milk, sugar and Cardamom. Corn flour is added as thickening ingredient. When I was in school, we get this paal ice from a roadside vendor who comes for selling this on every Sunday. We enjoy this with family. I never thought this Paal ice can be prepared at home easily. I have come across this recipe in pinterest and gave a try. It is similar to that Paal ice that I enjoyed in school days. I have added colored coconut flakes to the popsicle for the taste, adding it is optional.

Freezing time : 8 hours
Cooking time : 10 minutes
No. Of serving : 7 popsicles
- Milk – 2 cups
- Sugar – 5 tbsp
- Cardamom – 3
- Corn flour – 2 tsp

1. Boil milk in a pan in medium flame. Take corn flour in a bowl and add little milk to it. Mix it without lumps.
2. Once the milk comes to boil, reduce the flame, add sugar and crushed cardamom to the milk.
3. Stir well until the sugar dissolves. Pour the corn flour mixture to the milk and stir continuously to avoid burning.
4. Once the milk thickens a little and becomes creamy, remove from flame and cool completely.
5. Add some coconut flakes to the bottom of popsicle mould and pour the prepared milk to the mould.
6. Cover with cling wrap and place the popsicle sticks. I didn’t have cling wrap so I refrigerated until it becomes little firm and placed the sticks.
7. Refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight. Once done, for demoulding show the mould under running water and remove the popsicle gently from the mould.
8. Serve immediately and enjoy this Paal ice.
Adding coconut flakes gives a crunchy taste to the popsicles. Chopped nuts can also be aded.
